The "Duc" ready for the road again - April 2010
Now all the winter projects are all done, the only thing left is riding the old thing.
The paint scheme has changed. The tank is now black. A new shiny exhaust downpipe is fitted.
New cables are made
New front brake linings fitted and skimmed to fit the drum
The front fork cleaned for old oil and filled with the factory recommended oil
Engine oil changed 15W/40
New footrest rubbers - pillion footrests added
New correct size (almost) needle and needle jet fitted. The correct needle size (V13) is not available anymore. The bike runs much better now, accelerates and revs better.
Lots of other small jobs made this winter. I cannot remember them all.
I took a couple of new picture the other day. See more in the My Ducati Scrambler - pictures gallery.
Winterprojects - winter 2009/2010
I will try to list some of the projects I have come up with for the winter.
New exhaust - some kind of upswept model, not sure of the model yet
New paint for gas tank - there's a small spot where the paint has lifted due to an old leakage (tank sealed)
Alloy mudguards - for the fantastic light weight look.
Right now the bikes is a little dismantled. I will keep you up to date with pictures.
I have just sent for some parts from Italy. I hope they are available to me soon.
The bike is in my workshop, totally naked without tank, seat, mudguard and exhaust. Ready for some cleaning and servicing.
X-mas holiday 2009
Today 23/12 the day before christmas my new part came. A nicely packed boxed was delivered to my doorstep by courier from Italy. The shipment was delayed a few days due to very bad vinter conditions in most of Europe. Certainly here in Denmark, the snow is piling up outside. At the time it is better sitting here making up stories for my homepage that laying on my workshop floor freezing.
But with the new parts in house, i cannot wait much longer.
See below for pictures of the parts I just received
New and shiny exhaust downpipe :-)
New and shiny headlight rim with visor
Footrest and gear selector rubber
Various small bits
A set of Ducati saddle bags
I will revert with news when progress is made. I am hoping to see my freshly painted gas tank very soon, can't wait.

The exhaust and rear wheel of my 1968 Ducati Scrambler. The enduro tyres
are not good for high speeds but for my way of driving they are just fine.
And they look awesome, suits the bike.
